The Skinny: This renovated 1820s farmhouse in Great Barrington, Massachusetts has a lot to offer those who feel the call of the Berkshires. Bought for $542K in 2011 and "renovated with respect for history by two modernist architects" who since decided to flip their pet project, it's been on offer in all its whitewashed semi-modernity since June of 2013. Since then, it's had just over $200K lobbed off the price, reaching the current ask of $1.15M.

The wood floors, built-ins, beams, and moldings are mostly original to the home; some of the greater departures from the nineteenth-century workmanship include the kitchen (of course), and the modern windows on the barn, which is currently used as a detached office. There are two bedrooms with ensuite baths on the first floor, and three smaller ones upstairs. A "year-round porch" looks out over the two-acre property, which abuts the Green River.
